Salmonella is the most common bacterial form of food poisoning. Symptoms of salmonella include diarrhea, abdominal cramps and fever within eight hours to 72 hours of eating contaminated food.  It can be life-threatening, especially to those with weakened immune systems. Completely and thoroughly cooking the eggs can kill the bacteria, but health officials  recommend that  people throw away or return the recalled eggs.
